We will provide an overview of honey bee biology, hive dynamics, and challenges facing our beloved honeybees. The main focus of this field day is to give you direct access and hands-on experience! You will perform hive inspections along with us, and we'll explain the process as we go.
You'll gain a new appreciation for the art of beekeeping, and hopefully catch the "bug" to start a colony of your own! And you'll leave with a jar of delicious MCA local wildflower honey!
